This was delicious and so easy to make. My son loves it as well!! he says it’s the best dessert I’ve ever made and everyone raved about it! Seriously delicious, vegans and non-vegans alike can appreciate how great this pie is! Chocolate and peanut butter–my absolute favorite combination!

Healthy Avocado Chocolate Cookies

Anyone wondering – strange as it seems, you can’t taste the avocado at all, it just adds a really nice texture. Also, the coconut sugar doesn’t actually taste like coconut, it’s really sweet and if anything it has a slight caramel flavor to it.
I have made these 2 times and they are delicious! I keep mine in the freezer.  Absolutely awesome cookies!
Ingredients 100 g. (3/4 cup) avocado flesh (very ripe, but not brown)½ cup (120mL) coconut sugar (*SEE NOTES)1 egg (FOR VEGAN VERSION SEE BELOW)½ cup (120mL) dark cocoa powder50 g. dark chocolate chunks (I used 85% cocoa)½ tsp. baking soda
